I stole this meme from Dave

1. Of all the bands/artists in your cd/record collection, which one do you own the most albums by? Nine Inch Nails. Up until very recently, I was completely compulsive about collecting each "halo" - Trent's cutesy term for anything musical he publishes.
2. What was the last song you listened to? My aunt singing various soul tunes.
3. What’s in your record/cd player right now? I don't use my cd player anymore... but my Shuffle has about 1 gig of random stuff - Franz Ferdinand, NIN, U2, Me First and the Gimmee Gimmees.
4. What song would you say sums you up? Liz Phair's Extraordinary - the line 'average everyday sane pyscho Supergoddess' seems to fit.
5. What’s your favorite local band? Molly and the Ringwalds, an awesome 80's cover band.
6. What was the last show you attended? Some random band on Beale Street in Memphis last night. No idea who they were, but they had pretty good Hendrix covers...
7. What was the greatest show you’ve ever been to? Nine Inch Nail's downward spiral tour in February 1995. Close seconds - Hometown Throwdown by the Bosstones in 2001 and U2 Elevation tour just last month.
8. What’s the worst band you’ve ever seen in concert? Collective Soul. So freaking bad I'm astonished they ever got signed.
9. What band do you love musically but hate the members of? Slim Shady. Such a prick, but so talented. Oh well.
10. What show are you looking forward to? Well, I don't have anything planned. We had our excellent concert month last month - U2 and NIN about 10 days apart! Yipee!
11. What is your favorite band shirt? An old NIN shirt from the 1995 tour. It is the only shirt I've ever actually patched. Usually I am so not into the sewing...
12. What musician would you like to hang out with for a day? Bono or Moby.
13. What musician would you like to be in love with for a day? Bono. Or Trent Reznor if I thought he wasn't probably infected with every STD known to man.
14. Metal question-Jeans and Leather vs. Cracker Jack clothes? Jeans.
15. Sabbath or solo Ozzy? Sabbath.
16. Commodores or solo Lionel Ritchie? If I have to answer this, Commadores. But I hate them both.
17. Punk rock, hip hop or heavy metal? Punk! Now fuck off!
18. Doesn’t Primus suck? Of course Primus Sucks; otherwise the end of days would come.
19. Name 4 flawless albums: NIN, downward spiral. NIN, broken (altho it is an EP, so only counts for half). Nirvana, Nevermind. Guns and Roses, Appetite for Destruction.
20. Did you know that filling out this survey makes you a music geek? Yes, I figured that.
21. What was the greatest decade for music? 1995 - 2005.
22. How many music-related videos/dvds do you own? Two.
23. Do you like Journey? Only when really really really really drunk.
24. Don’t try to pretend you don’t! Yeah, painful...
25. What is your favorite movie soundtrack? The Crow.
26. What was your last musical “phase” before you wisened up? Metal. Really, people screaming into a microphone only sounds new and invigorating while teen.
27. What’s the crappiest CD/record/etc. you’ve ever bought? Wham! Yes, I dug that cute George Michael. So sad that he's gay.
28. Do you prefer vinyl or CDs? CD's or iPod. I still like having the CD around 'cause I dig that info jacket. There's cool stuff in there, man!

NIN, nirvana, the crow soundtrack... excellent

i'm still pretty stuck on getting all the halos. i've been out of the country since feb 2005, but i had a few days back home and could pick up 'with teeth' and 'the hand that feeds'. i fear trent may be losing his touch. but then again i might have to listen to it again.

hope you feel better with the GAE
